Porcelain Veneers and Your Smile
Time to take down the lights, get rid of the tree, and throw away that eggnog. The holidays are over, and as you move away from carols to Valentine’s cards, there is still one thing that should not be left in holiday’s past—your New Year’s Resolutions.
While most people stop lifting weights or crashing dieting a few days into the New Year, there is no reason why you should not strive to reach your goals. And maybe one of your goals is less than traditional. Maybe you have been hoping and wishing to improve your smile so you can feel confident every time you have to show your pearly whites. Maybe it is the time to consider porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are applied to the front of your existing teeth to give you the look and feel of that “Hollywood Smile” that you have always wanted. To learn more about porcelain veneers and the short procedure process, keep reading.
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
You might already be thinking to yourself, “What does the porcelain veneers procedure entail? I know that a lot of procedures take a lot of time—is this one of those procedures?”
The porcelain veneers procedure is relatively simple, and usually can be completed in a total of three visits. During the first visit, Dr. Monteagudo will consult with you about the procedure and see if it is the right fit to meet your cosmetic dentistry goals. He can evaluate your dental x-rays, and listen to any questions or concerns that you have about the procedure. If it looks like porcelain veneers are the way to go, then you will proceed onwards to your next visit.
During the second visit, Dr. Monteagudo will take molds of your teeth so he can send the models to a laboratory to make the veneers. After about a week, the veneers will arrive and you will return for a third visit.
During your final visit, Dr. Monteagudo will remove some of the enamel from your teeth so that the veneers can be attached. He will trim and form the veneer so that he can achieve the perfect fit. Dr. Monteagudo will also match the porcelain veneer with the color of your natural teeth. And then it is the moment that you have been waiting for! Your smile will be revealed and you can see the impact of the porcelain veneers!
